The Beale papers (1885)

Keywords: Beale; ciphers; papers; secret; treasure; buried; Thomas; Jefferson; DOI; Declaration of Independence; code; crypt; decode; key
Year: 1885
Language: English
Collection: opensource


The Beale ciphers are a set of three ciphertexts, one of which allegedly states the location of a buried treasure of gold and silver estimated to be worth over 30 million US dollars in the present time. The other two ciphertexts allegedly describe the content of the treasure, and list the names of the treasure's owners' next of kin, respectively. The story of the three ciphertexts originates from an 1885 pamphlet detailing treasure being buried by a man named Thomas Jefferson Beale in a secret location in Virginia in 1820.
